       fpga_load - Xorcom Astribank (xpp) firmware tool


       fpga_load [-g] [-r] [-v] -D {/proc/bus/usb|/dev/bus/usb}/BUS/DEV

       fpga_load   [-g]   [-v]   -D   {/proc/bus/usb|/dev/bus/usb}/BUS/DEV  -I
       firmware.hex [-b dump.bin] [-i]

       fpga_load -h


       fpga_load loads the FPGA firmware to the Xorcom Astribank device.   The
       syntax resembles that of fxload(8).


       -b dump.bin
              Before  writing  firmware,  bump  the  processed  binary file to

       -D DEVICE
              Required. The device to read from/write to. On modern UDEV-based
              system  this  is  usually /dev/bus/usb/bus_num/device_num, where
              bus_num and device_num are the first two numbers in  the  output
              of  lsusb(8).   On  older  systems that use usbfs, it is usually

              Reset the Astribank and renumerate its USB connection  to  power
              on product ID.

              Dump all eeprom data to standard output.

       -I fireware_file
              The firmware file to write to the device.

              Show  information  about  the  firmware file (valid only with -I
              option).  Example:

                   ./FPGA_1151.hex: Version=3297 Checksum=58270

              In particular, the calculated checksum should match  the  output
              of  sum(1)  on  the  binary  firmware  file  generated by the -b

              Increase verbosity. May be used multiple times.

              Displays usage message.
